The folks at CocoaTech, who specialize in the design and development of Mac OS X software, have updated SNAX, their file browser for Mac OS X, to version 1.2.5.
SNAX is a Finder replacement for Mac OS X, with many more features. It was written entirely in Cocoa, exclusively for Mac OS X, according to Steve Gehrman, the utility’s creator.
The latest version adds Labels functionality; a preference for bolding folders, italicizing aliases and dimming invisible files; a “Network” icon at the mounted disk level; a preference to adjust the smart sort order; and more. And of course there are several bug fixes.
“With the release of SNAX, file browsing on a Macintosh is no longer a function exclusive to Apple’s Finder,” Gehrman said. “Our short term goal is to surpass Apple’s Finder in every way: ease of use, features, quality and performance. After that, we plan to keep adding killer features until SNAX becomes the ultimate file utility for Mac OS X.”
SNAX 1.2.5, which requires Mac OS X 10.1 and higher, is available for immediate download and is fully functional. Registering SNAX for US$30 turns off a periodic “Please Purchase” dialog. The utility works on Mac OS X 10.1 and higher. SNAX has been localized for Japanese, German, Swedish, Norwegian, French, Italian and English.
